Eyelit Integration™ | FactoryConnect is an award-winning product used to centralize connectivity and coordinate information between heterogeneous applications across the enterprise. From high-level business systems to production-intensive applications, FactoryConnect delivers critical information rapidly to the users who need it most. Built on its platform-independent, Java-based application framework, the solution expedites the necessary tools for listening to and responding to events from any application in real time. User-defined information handlers process events and requests (in either a synchronous or asynchronous manner) and may trigger other handlers, respond to the requester, store to a database, page someone, requisition another application, etc.

FactoryConnect bridges platforms to create on-demand production information. The built-in event manager to listens to requests, regardless of the host's location or platform, and responds immediately to the requests at hand. FactoryConnect's handlers can manipulate and control data views to provide cross-sectional views of data from various sources. This creates an intranet of valuable information that used to required long hours of data extraction and data manipulation.
